Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport (also known as Palmaseca International Airport) is located in Palmira, Colombia and is the main airport which services the Colombian city of Cali and the surrounding metropolitan area. Cali airport is the alternative to Eldorado airport in Bogota and the Jose Maria Cordova Airport in Medellin.
Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport is located 12 miles from the city of Cali, nestled in the bottom of a long valley which runs from north to south. The valley is surrounded by mountains which rise to heights of 14,000 feet, offering passengers fantastic views during arrival and takeoff.
A flight from Miami to Cali usually takes less than three and a half hours and Auto Europe will gladly help you book a rental car so that it is waiting for you upon arrival at CLO. If you're flying out of Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport we're happy to arrange to have a rental car waiting for you at your destination.
CLO features two main terminals with international flights serviced by Terminal 1 and domestic flights housed in terminal 2. Once you depart your plane at Cali International Airport follow the crowd and signs toward immigration and baggage claim. The Immigration officer will offer your passport a stamp and approve the duration of your stay (30 days is standard - you'll have to explain if you plan to stay longer). Gather your luggage and proceed through customs toward the rental car desks near the front of Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport.
As you proceed to the rental car counters be aware that in Colombia numerous cab drivers will offer to help you with your luggage (whether you ask for it or not). A simple "No, gracias" with a smile will make it clear that you’re not interested in accepting a ride.
Once you've secured your car rental you'll be treated to a beautiful drive from CLO to Cali. If you have questions at any point in the process airport personnel or staff members at the rental car desk will be happy to offer additional information or to respond to inquiries about currency conversion. While speaking Spanish isn't necessary many Colombians appreciate if you make a small effort to use "please," "thank you" and other courtesies in their native tongue.
